My name is Grace Atkins Lavender, and I am announcing my candidacy for Greene County Commissioner of District 5 in the Primary Election on June 5th, 2018. Being a resident of Greene County my entire life, I have witnessed candidates make promises, share their hopes and visions, only to see them never materialize for the citizens of their respective districts. This leads me to the conclusion that it’s time to put a stop to broken promises and produce plans for visions to become a reality.
I realize that this must be a collaborative effort and I am willing to work with other commissioners, mayors, councilpersons, community and district leaders to see results. Further, I will make myself visible in the community throughout the four years and not only during my campaign bid as commissioner.
My heart goes out to two of the most vulnerable of the community, the youth and elderly. The youth need to be heard and respected because they are our future, and the elderly have the wisdom of the past that can provide insight to make our future brighter. I respect both and will seek ways make both of them instrumental in all decision and plans implemented. As I continue to visit my community my ears and heart will be open to your concerns and make sure it is noted and plans are implement around your concerns. I am asking for your vote on June 5th to be your next representative as County Commissioner of District 5. Together we can turn the tide for a brighter future.
Thank you in advance for your support.
